Re: Would you prefer these as the Raiders jerseys?

i would but most would not, i like the busy look like some effort went into them, the actual jerseys look plain and quickly designed.

Re: NRL ban Jack Wighton for 10 matches, impose $30,000 fine

My issue is that the sentence is so bloody weak. Imagine if any of us, a 'Joe Bloggs' if you will, did this out in town and was charged. At best you would get a minimum two years suspended sentence and probably 8 months in jail for a first offence. Enjoying the luxury of life in a 2x2 concrete cell...

Re: Elliott Whitehead on short list for Golden Boot Award

WOW!, whitehead so hard done by.

the kid is great but no one came close to whitehead for that award and even tedesco would have been my 2nd pick.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

Jez can you please share the kool-aid around instead of keeping it all for yourself? Offering Austin, Paulo and Boyd contracts and them leaving the club is not, by any stretch, good cap management. We paid Cowboys for Fensom to replace him with Bateman. Fensom was our best and most reliable forward...

Why we ever let TPJ Go is beyond me, he would of been worth what, 200k when we had him? Now he is close to a million. If it's true Ricky told TPJ that he would never make first grade then I dont know how TPJ is even a remote possibility of coming back. Ricky is a first class tool, remember the othe...

Hi All, I am a long time lurker but have decided to sign up to jump in on this exciting subject... First of all I think it would be a masterstroke to sign Johnson, he would fit into our squad perfectly. He would almost instantly change us from " almost good enough" to premiership contenders.

Re: Nail it or fail again - What is the pass mark for the Raiders in 2019?

Please don't think we were matching it with the best by beating the Roosters and Souths.

which ever way you spin it hodgson is the 2nd or 3rd best hooker in the game so he is still a marquee signing and whitehead is a gun.

surely more credit is due to sign players before they become guns, it's easy to see a gun and wave bags of money at them
